CAPTAIN for the day Dan Griggs was delighted to end the season on a high.

The City skipper helped inspire his team to a 5-1 drubbing of London Colney in the SML Premier Division yesterday.

And the midfielder is looking forward to playing a key role for the Citizens in next season's campaign.

The 29-year-old said: "It was a tight first half and we got a lucky goal to get started, but after that I thought it was a superb performance.

"We had a lot of youngsters out today again, which made the win all the more impressive, and we kept the ball well."

The Doncaster-born midfielder has played a starring role in the Citizens' line-up this season, and if the Herns Lane side are to progress, they should look towards keeping the energetic talisman.

And the same can be said of promising centre-half Liam Kenna, who has put in some sterling performances of late, having not got much of a look in when Howard Cowley was in charge.

The 19-year-old defender said: "It's been really good getting regular games, and I have been pleased with my performances.

"I have known Dave (Lewis) a long time, and am delighted at finally being given the chance to show I am worth a place in the team."

This was echoed by assistant manager Graham Wallis, who has been impressed with Kenna's development.

He said: "We are very pleased with how Liam has been playing, and he has been a big asset to the team since we (Wallis and manager Dave Lewis) took charge."

Both Griggs and Kenna will be big players in the Herts Charity Shield final against Tring Athletic on Tuesday night at the Letchworth County Ground.
